Sunggee Min — Silver Lotus Tree Stud Earrings with Topaz
Sunggee Min is a Melbourne based jewellery designer who works predominantly in silver and semi-precious stones, and by commission in gold. His contemplative practice draws from a background in Philosophy and Literature, as well as formal training in Jewellery and Product design from NMIT.
This nexus of disciplines, results in the purposeful use of natural materials, reconfigured by the casting process to become jewellery, but bearing the characteristics of the natural world from which they are derived. The simple clarity of nature as a reference point provides a strong and thoughtful basis for a new language of ornament clearly identifiable with Sunggee’s practice. The casting process used means that Sunggee is able to make every item unique.
